Sermon About Self-Control: The Power of Self-Control Galatians 5:22-25

The Power of Self-Control

We all have weaknesses. But what if there was a way to turn them into strengths?  The Bible teaches that we can and must control ourselves. It is a realistic expectation!

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of self-control, (a sound mind, KJV). 2 Tim 1:7

What is self-control? It refers to one who masters his appetites, emotions, inclinations and urges.

It involves abstinence from which is prohibited, but moderation in that which is permissible!

1. Christian’s must have discipline over mind and body to win the spiritual race. (I Corinthians 9:24-27)

Christians must have discipline over temptation and sin to win the race against Satan.

Self-control is a vital virtue! Self-control is all about being disciplined!

Athletes must have discipline over mind and body to win races.

Self control is an important part of life. It helps us resist temptation, stay focused on our goals, and avoid making bad decisions. In this sermon, will talk about going to learn how to use willpower to achieve success in life.

Learn how to control your emotions.

If you've ever tried to lose weight, quit smoking, or stop drinking alcohol, you probably know that self-control isn't easy. You might even feel like giving up when things get tough. But with practice, you'll find that you can develop better self-control.

It can be obtained, however, with prayer, persistence, and proper positioning, (not putting yourself in compromising situations – 1 Corinthians 15:33)

2. Self-control is listed as one as a fruit of the Spirit, (Galatians 5:22-25) and a Christian grace. (2 Peter 1:5,6)

It's not just about being healthy; it's also about taking care of yourself. In fact, research shows that people who exercise regularly tend to eat healthier foods and drink less alcohol than those who don't. They're also more likely to make positive changes in other areas of their lives, such as improving relationships with family members and friends.

Self-control is a wonderful thing! It frees one from being a slave to self.

He is no longer driven by his desires, but is empowered to overcome these things.

Enables a person to restrain his tongue, temper, and thoughts.

3. Titus 2:6 - “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us self-controlled”

Titus 2:6 - “Urge the younger men to be self-controlled”

If you've ever tried to lose weight, you probably know that it's easier said than done. You might even have heard that willpower is an illusion—that we actually have very little control over our actions. But the truth is, we do have some control over our behavior. And when we use that power wisely, we can achieve goals that would otherwise seem impossible.
